Thanks for the tip peroro. The shading is just decorative hatching, you'll notice that it doesn't really follow the form at all, it's used more as a design element(sometimes more successfully than others.)
you've got nice studies, I like volumes in dogs "cartoon" studies.
You posted drawings in the section "drawing from the mind" I think you must take care about legs length...they are a bit too long, in fact pelvis is at the middle of the body...look more specially at the 3rd character.

This is the correct length of the legs. The Symphysis Pubis(Crest of the Pelvis) should be seen halfway down the figure standing upright. I've attached the Andrew Loomis and Jack Hamm proportion charts which show this exactly.
Are you sure its not the volume of the legs? Or the space that they're taking up in the picture? In combat poses, athletes often have a wide base, so maybe this looks strange...
